Quite a number of projects heating up as March 2007 gets nearer. March, as you know, is the 200th anniversary of the abolition of slavery.
1. The Truth Isnt Sexy
Check out these flyers and banners. Its almost enough to get my blogged banned from censoring software programs . . . . AGAIN!
My friend Si Johnston of Protest 4 says The Truth Isnt Sexy Campaign is kicking off. It needs your prayer and support if we are to make a dent in the human trafficking situation by MARCH next year. The beer mats are not available online yet but i have seen the e-versions – really powerful and sad. The front side contains the images like you see above, and the back has the story of abuse and slavery that is connected.
3. Amazing Grace
This month I saw a short preview of "Amazing Grace", Walden Media’s movie based on the life of William Wilberforce. Really excellent film! The venerable Bob Beltz from Walden Media graced our presence at the Die Gefaehrten Roundtable at Freakstock Festival and showed the preview to about 800 young people who gave enthusiastic approval. Bob’s photo was taken by LovingBoy [real name: Emmanuel, and he took lots of great pictures]
There is a lot of possibilities with this movie and the various discussion groups and action groups that could arise from it. Love to hear your thoughts on that.
